Now lets start with your first frustration on your list.... John Edward. I will answer your frustrations one at a time.

It seems that you are getting your info from Sceptoid and the forum that dedicates itself to call JE "The Biggest Douche in the Universe."
Perhaps you have been watching too much of South Park and think the animations are real.

JE has been one of the most scientifically investigated psychics ever and has a billion to billion hit ratio. This, when he could not read some people at all and he did not use cold reading to pretend. He just said that he had no connection.
These tests were all double and triple blind so no cold reading was possible.
John Edward, indeed the biggest douche in the universe, uses the shotgunning technique to select his fool and cold reads with the "starting with p", "sounds like penis", "something to do with water, drank water?" bull****. Under controlled conditions conveniently gets nothing. Try again.

This reply has made me think you are a stupid kid and I therefor can no longer discuss adult stuff with you.
If their psychic powers allow them to evacuate disaster areas, then surely their psychic powers can help them avoid getting eaten.

What power do you think it is. We all know that dogs can do this not so? Even rats have that ability and depart from a place that us people do not know is to be hit by a catastrophe. Instinct or whatever. It remains psychic.

We too have this ability but most of us have un learned this ability due to us not needing it anymore. Some people have still retained it though and it is called PSI.
Perhaps the rats ancestors told them to run the hell out.:)
Is this caused by all the of BS that you are shovelling?

JE is a fraud. It's obvious to even only marginally intelligent people. The fact that other exposed TV charlatans, like "Dr" Phil and "Dr" Oz vouch for him, helps emphasise the total douchery involved here.

Shows how little you know about the tests. JE could not read one of the sitters and said so. Simply no one came through for the sitter. He elected to pass on her instead of doing "cold reading". Nevertheless, he scored ~80% for the test.

Some psychics get information by sounds or pictures. Some get clear sounds like Gordon Higginson that could state the full names and correct addresses. Most psychics say it is like dictating to an obtuse secretary through a thick frosted glass window.
JE says he gets sounds that seem to get shouted across a raging river. The soft sounds are not heard.

The notion that 'It is rational to only believe what's been proven' somehow got twisted into ‘It is irrational to believe in anything that hasn't been proven".

That would be equivalent to saying that because I’ve never been to Japan, everyone else who claims to have been there is mistaken or deluded.

The sceptics, of course will say that those tests yielded impossible results and therefore were not done under properly controlled conditions, or else the researchers’ overzealous desire to get psi results botched the results.
But this of course reflects their bias and a priori dismissal of facts that don’t fit in with their beliefs.
It is not logical to deny the facts that don’t support your beliefs, it is more logical to update your beliefs to account for the facts.

Sceptics and scientific materialists do not have the monopoly on rational thinking. Lots of rational intelligent intellectual people believe in God, spiritual dimensions, or that there is more to reality than the material world.
The sceptics' system of rational thinking is not the dictatum by which all things that exist must conform to.
This can easily be demonstrated by all the things that sceptics have been wrong about before, such as flight, laws of physics, quantum mechanics, giant squid, etc. proving their fallibility.

#Snotvreter. It WAS NOT A SHOW. It was a scientific test done by Dr Schwartz and his team done under strict triple blind conditions.

Oh dear me. Do you go to the Klu Klux Klan website to ask what race is superior? What answer do you think you will find there?
Skeptic.com is the same and you will find a biased answer. Not so?
Your mindset is already made up and you will not waver from it ever. What you cannot explain is "fraud"

Get real now and grow up and stop posting until you have done so.
